National County Government Month (NCGM) is celebrated each April by the nation’s counties to raise public awareness and understanding about the roles and responsibilities of county government.
The 2013 NCGM theme is: Smart Justice.
Counties participate in NCGM by hosting a variety community outreach events and activities. These include tours of county facilities, recognition ceremonies for county employees and volunteers, distribution of information about county programs and services, sponsoring student essay contests, meetings with business and community leaders, and adoption of resolutions.
Since 1991, the National Association of Counties (NACo) has encouraged counties across the country to actively promote county government programs and services. Use the hashtag #NCGM on Twitter and share how your county is celebrating National County Government Month.
